Photo Flash: First Look at Julie White, Judith Roberts & More in MTC's AIRLINE HIGHWAY

Manhattan Theatre Club presents Steppenwolf Theatre Company's Airline Highway, now in previews for a Thursday, April 23 opening at MTC's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre (261 West 47th Street). Below, BroadwayWorld brings you a first look at the cast!

The Broadway cast of Airline Highway features Carolyn Braver (Steppenwolf's Leveling Up, "Chicago Fire"), Tony Award nominee and Steppenwolf ensemble member K. Todd Freeman (Steppenwolf's The Song of Jacob Zulu, Fetch Clay/Make Man), Scott Jaeck (Steppenwolf's August: Osage County,The Irish Curse), Ken Marks (Father Comes Home from the Wars), Caroline Neff (Older Children, Steppenwolf's The Way West), Tim Edward Rhoze(Steppenwolf's The Crucible and Wendell Green), Judith Roberts (Present Laughter, "Orange Is The New Black"), Joe Tippett (Ashville, Ghost Brothers of Darkland County), and Tony Award winner Julie White (The Little Dog Laughed, From Up Here). Completing the 16-person ensemble are Todd d'Amour,Shannon Eagen, Venida Evans, Joe Forbrich, Leslie Hendrix, Sekou Laidlow, and Toni Martin.

In the parking lot of The Hummingbird, a once-glamorous motel on New Orleans's infamous Airline Highway, a group of friends gather. A rag-tag collection of strippers, hustlers and philosophers have come together to celebrate the iconic burlesque performer Miss Ruby. The party rages through the night as old friends resurface to pay their respects. A world premiere written by Pulitzer Prize finalist Lisa D'Amour (Detroit) and directed by two-time Tony winner Joe Mantello (Casa Valentina, Take Me Out), Airline Highway is a boisterous and moving ode to the outcasts who make life a little more interesting.

The creative team for Airline Highway includes Scott Pask (scenic design), David Zinn (costume design), Japhy Weideman (lighting design), Fitz Patton(original music and sound design), and Thomas Schall (fight director).
